Both of our pets vets

We have a dog and a cat that both go here. We have been really happy with the staff and vets. Dr. Judkins is great. We found a less expensive place for dental work, but otherwise we have no complaints. They aren't exactly voodoo doctors - our pets have blood and other work done there and they have recommended x-rays and other tests.

Get A Second Opinion

Dr Hamann is an excellent, kind, and caring vet, but in her absence, we took our ailing cat, the love of our lives, to see another, newer vet at Hawthorne Vet Clinic, who gave our beautiful boy an extremely cursory examination, then told us that the problem was that he had ""too much heat"" in his diet and recommended a raw food diet. That was it - all he had done was to palpate our cat's belly. We had tried raw food on our cats before, but they would never eat it. Nevertheless, although dubious about this vague diagnosis, we spent months trying every brand and type of raw cat food, at great expense, and all for nought. None of our cats would eat it, including the ferals we feed. Our sick cat began to lose weight alarmingly, until finally we took him to another, traditional vet clinic, and were told that he had advanced cancer, was dying, and all we could do for him now was home hospice care. They instructed us in how to make him comfortable, provide IV fluids, and dose him with kitty morphine for pain. We took our boy home and did what we could, but the diagnosis came too late and he died less than a week later. This is just a warning - do not depend on herbs, flower remedies, raw food, or a rushed, dodgy examination from a 'holistic' vet for a diagnosis and cure. Always get a second opinion from a traditional vet - if we had done so sooner, our little love could possibly have been treated in time and still be with us. It would be nice if herbal medicine worked for serious conditions, or if trying to conjure a diagnosis from little more than divination was valid, but we have never had any luck with it, and will not be trying it any more. This is our second cat to die from undiagnosed cancer while under the care of a holistic veterinary clinic, and we feel that it was our fault for not seeking help from traditional veterinary medicine sooner. The guilt and sorrow we feel will never leave us.

get in line

May be a good vet clinic, but they have outgrown themselves and have not made the changes necessary to support the volume/growth they have been experiencing for at least a year, maybe 2 years. I have been going to this vet for 4 years and can't recommend it - the continuity just isn't there.

Lost refill requests, delayed appointments, staff too busy to be friendly. It's a shame that it's not getting resolved.

One last pet peeve I have is that after 4 years they still call my cat a ""he"" although she's a ""she"".
